Happy World Diabetes Day 2011!


November is one of my favorite months! There are so many special days - Kaci's birthday, my birthday, my Mom's birthday, Thanksgiving- and this year....A 7 DAY TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD!!! November brings cooler weather, Christmas decorating, stew and chili dinners!

In the last few years we have also been able to add another special event to the month of November. November is Diabetes Awareness Month- and World Diabetes Day is celebrated every year on November 14. (which did I mention also happens to be MY BIRTHDAY?- Happy Birthday to ME!)

World Diabetes Day is the the primary global awareness campaign of the diabetes community. World Diabetes Day commemorates the birthday of Frederick Banting, who with his colleague Charles Best, discovered insulin in 1921.
The official UN symbol for diabetes is a simple ring in the same shade of blue as is used on the United Nations Flag and many other United Nations symbols. The ring symbol was chosen because it is easy to display and could even be painted on a wall or home-made banner. In addition, it occurs widely in nature and has been used in many cultures to symbolize unity, life, the globe and health.

S0- wear something BLUE to show your support!
And - Kiss a Diabetic...they need SUGAR too!
